Mercedes-Benz India had previously promised that 2016 would witness twelve new product launches. At the supposed final launch for the year, Mercedes-Benz India officials promised one more launch. It is now confirmed that the thirteenth product launch will be an AMG model.
The Mercedes-AMG C43 model will be coming to Indian shores on December 14, 2016. In all, the German-based luxury carmaker has introduced three new AMG models in India this year. 2017 AMG C43 will be a great offering that further enhances the C-Class range in India.
Powering the Mercedes-AMG C43 will be a 3.0-litre V6, bi-turbo engine. This engine will be capable of producing 357bhp, along with 521Nm of peak torque output. Mercedes will pair this engine to a 9G-TRONIC gearbox which will deliver power via 4MATIC all-wheel drive system.
AMG will provide its performance sedan with RIDE CONTROL, Sport suspension, electronically controlled AMG shock absorbers with 3-stage variable damping. The Mercedes-AMG C43 performance sedan will be laden with features that improve the driving experience.
Once launched, expect the Mercedes-AMG C43 to bear a price tag in excess of Rs. 1 crore ex-showroom. Thus, making it an interesting option, as the next best thing is their AMG C63 S model. All-new Mercedes-AMG C43 will be offered in India as a CBU (Completely Built Unit) model.
